A loan of $450 helped to buy manure for his cropland.

Leonides's story

Leonides, 47, lives with his wife in the district of Pomahuaca, which is in the Cajamarca area in Peru's northern mountains. The residents farm, run businesses, and raise livestock. Leonides raises goats. He buys from nearby farms and later sells in the Chiple district, where the best livestock are brought and where cacao is grown. He has applied for a loan of 1200 nuevos soles to maintain his land and buy manure so that he has more production to offer his customers and has more income for his family.
